Going up one fly line size is something I've thought about for 2 reasons: 1. because I practiced first on a guide's rod which was "upweighted" for beginners to learn the feel and 2. because the fly line on my rod is "okay", but is basically the line that comes on a reel when you buy a $150 beginner combo. I'd also like to have a fly line with premade loops on both ends for simplicity.

Thanks again!
SA's Headstart line is a great option. Its a half weight heavy, and very front end loaded to both shoot better and turn over the fly with force. To be honest I've recommended it for years because its $30 cheaper than the rest of their Mastery lines, but never owned one until recently.

I got one and fished it Saturday and its rather awesome. It does all that well, and has loops on both ends.
